    Hello all! I have a question. I had my Old Bartali Boat destroyed while I was AFK working on a guide for Protty Cave. I was just standing on my boat on the eastern coast of Weita Island. I'm curious, can any boat be destroyed by someone who is red? If I were to take a boat without cannons, could it be destroyed as well? I'm thinking maybe we could avoid PVP by taking the faster Roroju's Rescue Raft or Palm Raft?

    I didn't notice if there were any safe areas nearby. It never even crossed my mind that my boat might be sunk by another player! LOL! Is Iliya Island the closest safe zone?

    Guess I need some red player advice to finish the guide. Thanks much!

    And a big fat red YES! LOL! Ok, thanks. Hmmmm. Now what? Park boat at Iliya Island and shark/fish suit to Weita? That would be a long swim without one of those costumes. Or just take a really cheapo drift wood raft...

    This is part of their devious mechanics to get more people to buy the shark suit. This along with the seven day loyalties one to show how much better swimming is with one.
    They knew that all the immature grievers in this game would kill all the boats leading to more sales of the shark suit. Ingenious marketing ploy.

    While all that is true both these grind spots suck for loot & exp per hour.So welfare box for the Rings it is like everything else in this game.

    You can take the Griffin box from Velia to Iliya. No shark/ fish outfit needed. Go to the north side of Iliya and do a short swim/dive down. Weita for Protty Cave is the only tedious long swim. And there's plenty of alternative land options for long term grind at that AP.

    it was already answered but yes all boats can be destroyed.
    I also heard the guy doing it receives a huge amount of karmaloss for doing so too

    another way to counter it could be to tag you grind-char with an alt who sails there. that way the boat is logged out while you grind.

    Oof, some ppl need a break of this game... srsly... boat pvp was in way before the dev knew if there ever will be an underwater grind area.

    Additionally when u see that your boat gets attacked, change char / server.

    Isnt one of the beautiful things in bdo that everybody can play the game how he likes it? And yes, this includes ppl that want to rp/be an asshat.

    A boat is a mount, mounts can die, surprised eh?

    As stated above you either tag an alt and his boat or if your boat is destroyed you buy a travelers map to get back to velia

    This is how I kept my Sailboat from being destroyed by griefers. I thought this was the obvious option? Guess I was wrong. Then again I am dealing beings who brag about being handed lopsided victories and hand me down wins via RNG and P2W. LEL

    Doh! The only time I ever used the tagging system was when they had that awesome archer shared xp event! Didn't realize you could do this to protect your ship. Time to do some tagging then. Thanks much!

    Yes you can. And it's amazing to give those wannabe griefers a big F U by doing so.

    I think that they are too incompetent and too self assured to properly consider all the effects it has on the game

    Was anyone surpised? We had this issue on the test server. This game breeds toxicity and PA don't give to crap about it. Enjoy your grind just to find your boat gone afterwards.

    Like others on these forums. You think too lowly of Pearl Abyss. That is a huge error. In my actualy 7 months of playing this game and watching it develop I have to say Pearl Abyss is everything but incompetent.

    Objectively speaking they are pros at manipulation. They are very good at it. It shows that they play their game. BDO is the only Korean MMO to have entertain me so much to get me to spend over $300 USDs. These Koreans are very good at what they do. To sell them short is not only irrational but foolhardy.

    IIRC you need to be on your boat or close to it for it to be destroyed, right?

    So if you are near Protty Cave, you could get off and swim to Weita if you need to afk.
